Winter Food

What to eat when the temperature is 27 degrees Fahrenheit (-2.22 Celsius)? We love to go to King’s Kitchen and eat Cantonese when it snows and we want some food that will take the chill away. Fast. Rice Congee (or porridge) with pork and preserved eggs arrives so hot here it will take you time to eat or you will burn yourself. We love their delectable wasabi fried mushrooms as a perfect pairing to the congee. These wasabi-flavored appetizers taste almost like oysters. A very warming beverage is their fresh ginger honey, so invigorating! Another specialty is their custom made hot pot rice casseroles in which you choose the ingredients yourself. Try chicken, mushrooms & sausage, or eel with scallions (as pictured below). There’s a sweet soy sauce for the rice casserole, or a homemade red pepper sauce on every table. If you’re in a hurry you can order any roasted meat (pork, duck, chicken) over rice, it literally takes two minutes to arrive. We always encourage our guests to go deep into Chinatown but you have to go to Brooklyn to eat this variety of dishes and when it’s 27 degrees or snowing why not just go around the corner from Mimosa!
